What are the benefits of D1 v E1 ?

Recommended Posts

I know the position of the cabin is supposed to be better, and of course, its more expensive, but do you get anything , different, more ?


Any response is gratefully accepted :o


A D category cabin is larger than an E.


Which ship are you looking at?


You can see the deck plans for every ship on http://www.rccl.com :)


Those plans will also tell you the square footage of each type of cabin.

I've had both on Voyager class ships and the size is smaller on the E1 but it's minor and barely noticable. And I don't agree that location of D1 is always better. My E2 was a hump, and I think the aft 7388 is an E1 cabin and I'd love that one.

Have the deck plans in front of you when you book/change your cabin. Never book "blind"!

Personally, I'd rather be in the hump area than aft....those are some really, really long hallways, so if you tend to run back and forth to your cabin, it's a true pain in the a**!

Radiance of the Seas... I'm thinking of changing from corner hump to aft...possibly by the time I've made my mind up, I wont have the option!:o



Which itinerary? If it's Alaska, go with the aft! If you are booking this early, you do have four decks to choose from, so hopefully, you'll be able to snag one.
